I was at the Minneapolis Airport this past weekend and I found a Bread and Boxers stand at one of the gift outlets and couldn't resist taking a picture. I love their packaging and think it is incredibly clever! See for yourself.

Yesterday I found myself and the DVR at odds over what to watch and what to record. Game of Thrones? The 2hr premiere of River Monsters, or the 2hr Mad Men premiere? Well, Mad Men triumphed and it lived up to all the anticipation. I won't give away to many spoilers but I will tell you Betty's new hair color....perfect!

I'm not one for living plants indoors but my boyfriend is...so in the grand tradition of living together we compromised. They are called Marimo and they have a huge following. They're a great way to add some green around the place, bring good luck, and they make great pets too.

Throughout the week I tried to take pics of some great (and not so great) packaging ideas. Sometimes I remembered, and a lot of the times I forgot. Below are the survivors:
I thought this was adorable, but sometimes I found it hard to swallow. I'm not a fan of milk and the carton played a mind trick on me. Imagine expecting milk, but once the liquid hit your mouth it was water. Yeah, I thought about that each time I took a drink. Eventually as the week went by I though about it less and less. Great packaging and good for the environment? What do you think?
At the Rachael Ray Greenhouse party there was an exceptional amount of Patron in various forms. My favorite were the Coconut Patron Popsicles. I don't know the exact name/recipe but when I do I'll be sure to post. The great packaging idea comes in the popsicles, each stick has a different saying.
And the Eyesore Packaging of SXSW 2012 goes to Doritos!!!! A gigantic stage erected to resemble a Doritos vending machine.... You could see it miles away. Tacky yes, but effective...yeah, it got the job done.
